THB ADVOOATE 3 THE GAMBLER'S EEFBXSXXTAT1Y2 EE- KOXISATJED. J. E. Cubbison, the man who de feated the anti-lottery bill in the last legislature, has been renominated on the republican ticket at Kansas City t'.na year. This is a very good indi cation of the attitnde of the republi can party toward the lottery bnsi ness abont which republican papers are having so much to say just now. It is only a short time ago that the attorney general appointed an as sistant to aid the republican county attorney in breaking up the Kansas City lotteries. A test case wastriedin arepublican court down there which resulted in a decision that there 13 no law in Kansas to prevent the bnsi ness. Such a law was attempted to be passed at the last legislature and would have been passed but for the "influence" (that is what they call it if we mistake not) which Mr. Cubbi son was able to scatter about the re publican house. His success in the defeat of that bill has insured him a renomination. ome republican p...

6 THE ADVOOATB. A LITTLE HI3T0BY. Th8 game may not be worth the amunition, but we are in possession of some facta in relation to the past record of Ben Clover that we are tempted to present at this time. In his first speech at Meriden, since re turning to his wallow, he is reported assaying: I onoe believed and talked the good old Alliance doctrine. When the Alliance was first orgnnized, I had no idea it would de generate into what it did. When it first be came a political party, I did not believe that the wisest course had been taken, but I accepted the situation silently. Ben Glover knows that statement to be a deliberate falsehood, and he knows, too, that we have the docu ments over his own signature to prove it so. He knows that he was one of the prime movers in the events that changed the Alliance from a school of social and economic educa tion to an active force in politics, and he knows that we know it and have the documents to prove it. In a let ter oyer his signature publis...

TUB ADVOOATE. 7 HUNTING FOR MARE'S NESTS. The republicans of Kansas have not one solitary principle that they are contending for in this campaign. They have been repeatedly pointed to the conditions that everywhere prevail and asked what they propose to do to change them for the better, and they are as silent as the tomb upon the subject. They have been reminded of the millions of idle men and women throughout the country and asked what they propose to do to give these people employment, and they have no answer to give to the inquiry. Their attention has been repeatedly called to the fact that farmers are selling their products for less than cost of production, and asked what they propose to do to right this wrong, and the only an swer yet received is that the farmers must "keep a stiff upper lip and let nature take her course." They have been reminded of the thousands of honest people in every city in the land who would be industrious and useful citizens if they could and who are s...

Some Texas fever cattle have been brought into Anderson county and na tive cattle of that locality have been in fected with the diseass.

Of course, "protection keeps up the price of American labor." lie desired evidently to make his hearers realize that the United States is a great na tion "the richest nation on the globe." The people knew what wealth has come under republican adminis tration. He might have completed the sentence by telling where it has gone to and who now has it. His familiarity with our principles -was shown by his statement ..that- "no matter what the affliction the Populist remedy is more money." Said he, "The same lack of confidence would exist if 10 billions of dollars had been put into circulation when Cleveland took his scat.

I "I received $1 a day," she said, "and paid $17.71 per month rent for one cf the company's houses." J. B. Pierson, a resident of Pullman f was questioned aa to the relative price of rents. He stated that the Pullman company's houses averaged one-third to one-half higher than similar houses in the surrounding suburbs. Pierson laid that in the residence districts about Pullman rents had been materially re duced lately, but that no reduction had been made in the manufacturing towns. Miss Jane Adams, superintendent cf the Hull house charitable work and a member of the board of conciliation of the civio federation was the next wit cess. She said that during her investi gations of the strike she had found the strikers always ready to arbitrate, but that the Pullman officials did not appear disposed to make any effort to settle the trouble.

THE ADVOOATB. 80 me New Argnmcnt for the Single Tax. Editor Advocate: As there ia a con eider able amount of agitation in favor of substituting the single-tax for our present system of taxation, perhaps a comparison of the two systems with especial reference to their respective effects on the farmer would drive away some of the prejudice that exiata in the minds of some against said change. It takes about $10 per capita to run the government under the present sys tem , or about $50 for each family of five nearly COO million dollars per annum, which would amount to just $10 per capita for 60 million people. If the farmers paid with same propor tion aa the balance of the people, each farmer would pay. just an average, c-f $50 per annum into the government treas ury. But any man of ordinary intalli genca can see at a glance that the farm era pay a great deal more than the averagf citizen. Under the present sys tem of taxation, each pays in proportion to what he consumes, and there is n...

The investigations o fficial and otherwise, of the trouble at Pullman and the causes of the great strike, have thrown more light on the deplorable condition of labor throughout the country than anything that has ever been reported by the daily press. Because, there are very few daily papers whose editors will give the truth when it conflicts with the interests of wealthy individuals or corporations, except when the truth comes from an official source. The reform papers, which deal with the truth about such matters, are nearly all weeklies, and do not reach the daily news seeker.

2 THE MORAL OF IT. A Fellow Democrat and Anti-Paternalist Writes David Overmyer. To Governor Overmyer: I address you thus because, in my estimation, there is not much differ ence in point of dignity between the person nominated by a party for gov ernor and which would elevate him to that position if it had the votes, and the person actually so elevated by the party m the majority. Without a per sonal acquaintance with you, but from a long and thorough sympathy with your fundamental principle of anti paternalism in government, I take this method of informing you of my deep disappointment in respect to the pros pects and prevalence of such principle with our electors and in the adminis tration of our several governments, and to suggest the conclusion that I have come to in the premises. And should be glad to learn how my sentl ments correspond with yours as to the proper course to be pursued under the discouraging aspects of the case. For while I have hitherto entertained a high respe...

Those inter ested will do well to apply to the sec retary of state for the April number of the consular reports: "Here at least legislation has been introduced which has been most violently assailed as being experimental, socialistic, confis catory and impracticable. In a very short time the incidence of taxation has been almost wholly changed. Here reforms have been introduced which revolutionized the old system without affecting, at least to any appreciable extent, existing interests. The most determined opposition to the new sys tem came from the monied institu tions, loan companies and the owners of vast landed estates. As soon as the new system was established and under stood the credit of the col ony increased to an unprecedented de gree. Improvements to the value of 1,500 are exempt.

c THE ADVOCATE. "STILL WOSUIZD ABOUT IT.M So says the Kansas City Journal that there "are a number of Popu list papers ia Kansas that are still worried about Major Morrill's feel ings toward silver." The Journal is not well informed. It is a matter of perfect indifference to Kansas Pop ulists what may be Major Morrill's feelings toward silver. The attitude of the republican party toward silver is not a matter of doubt The party leaders are totally opposed to the use of silver or any other material except gold as money. They keep up a hypocritical pretense of willingness to have silver used as money in order to hoodwink the people; but even in this pretense they display the cloven hoof. They hold to the absolute in competency of the United States government to make a larger use of silver unless an international agree ment of the leading nations of the earth can be effected to make such use of it common. Even then they are committed tj no ratio between silver and gold; and the people ...

THE ADVOOATR 7 HONEST MONEY. The republican idea of honest money is an adjustable ona It very readily adapts itself to a change of circumstances. For illustration: Dur ing the war that party made paper money with which to pay the soldiers in the field for their great sacrifices in defense of the nation's life, the farmers for food with which to feed them, and manufacturers for clothing and blankets and munitions of war. Every dollar of that money was paid out at its face value for services and material. The same act by which it was created likewise provided for an issue of government bonds for ita re tirement; and the republican con gress which created it purposely and deliberately provided for ita depreci ation in order to make it profitable for Wall street brokers to purchase it and buy the bonds with it. This was the inducement deliberately and shamelessly offered to secure the sale of these interest-bearing securities of which the pirates were very shy until the fortunes of war ...

The Apostle Blarney Kelly will stump the Seventh district in company with that enow white angel of moral purity, Cheater Ling. Now there's a pair of camp-meeting sports to draw to. The attorney general gives an opinion that no bank can lawfully invest its finds in the stock of any other bank or corporation, and Commissioner Breiden thai has issued a circular to that effect. State Superintendent Gaines has been notified that he was awarded a medal from the World's Fair for his exhibit of institute work for the training of school teachers. Mr. Gaines ought to ba proud of such a recognition. Congressman Hudson has introduced a resolution to provide for a board of three pension commissioners instead of one, each of the three lead...
